Another major winter storm will affect the Northeast US over the next 48 hours or so with a mixed bag of precipitation in and around the local area and more significant snow accumulations in New England. This storm will swing a strong cold front through the Mid-Atlantic region later tomorrow and that will usher in more cold air for the middle and latter parts of the week – setting the stage for a cold second half of the month of March.
Snow broke out late last night in parts of Virginia and West Virginia ahead of the approaching strong cold front and a burst of accumulating snow is now winding down in the DC metro region with accumulations of a coating to an inch or so; especially, on grassy surfaces to the N and W of the District. After a lull in the precipitation later this morning, sleet and/or rain will pick up this afternoon and rain showers will continue from tonight into early Tuesday in the local DC metro region. It'll get milder tomorrow just ahead of the frontal passage and winds will pick up and will also be quite strong tomorrow night and Wednesday post-frontal system. Temperatures will remain below normal from the mid-week time period right into the upcoming weekend.
By the way, how strange is it to be talking about accumulating snow around here after the 15th of March? Since 1990, there have only been two reports at Dulles Airport with an inch or more of snow accumulation after March 15th, none at Reagan National Airport, and only one at BWI Airport.
